4500 Body Hair Transplant Procedure - 9 Month Update

Recommended Posts

  • Senior Member

This patient's hair loss was initially a Norwood 6 and wanted to achieve a full head of hair. Prior to his body hair transplant surgery by Dr. Umar, he underwent a strip procedure which left him with a large linear scar. Therefore, in addition to achieving the coverage that he wanted he also wanted to have this camouflaged.


In order to meet his goals, 4500 grafts were needed. Many of these follicles were extracted from the beard and nape. However, head and nape hair were also incorporated into the donor supply to create a more even looking coverage and a natural looking hairline edge.


Here is a breakdown of the grafts used:

Day 1: 1498 grafts of head and beard hair were applied to the crown

Day 2: 1601 grafts of head and beard hair were inserted into the crown

Day 3: 1385 grafts of head, beard and nape hair were inserted into the frontal and mid scalp hairline


The photos below show the patient's results at nine months:

There are things that I love in Dr Umar's cases and things that I do not like so much in his work.

And this is a good example:

Pictures are not so good in angles and light conditions.

It is also never shown how many grafts come from beard and how many come from head and nape. I think this is also an important detail missing in his cases.

Other than that I must say, in my opinion, that Dr Umar is the one who is continuously committed with the most difficult and almost impossible cases, something that is putting him even ahead of the Top surgeons.

He is obviously the master of BHT thus we would appreciate a bit better exposition of his cases with better pictures and detail graft breakdown.

Thanks for Giving hope to those with severe baldness and without enough scalp donnor!
